Public employees work for benefits

At the city of Rocklin 20 percent of the job “classifications” (people) pay over $100,000, but that’s OK because public employees sacrifice salary for the benefits. I’m certain that the same percentage of private sector employed make at least that much around here. And it stands to reason that six of these “best and brightest” deserve to be paid close to $1 million a year for the rest of their lives because they were smart enough to set aside a $10 million fund with tax dollars to cover pensions for themselves and their fellow public employees. None of this seems out of whack, does it? John Chase, Rocklin
